Pulled Pork Barbecue

Sauce Fixins Pork Barbecue is one of my fa­vorite things to eat. Good pork bar­be­cue is one of the tough­est things to cook. I gave it my first shot this past week­end, and it turned out bet­ter re­heat­ed than fresh­ly cooked. I used a recipe from a sus­pect site, but its sim­plic­i­ty is what drew me to it. I re­al­ly like to ex­per­i­ment, and this recipe leaves much room for that. I think I’m go­ing to have a few friends over for the Super Bowl and sub­ject them to an­oth­er go at the bar­be­cue. They liked my ribs from ear­lier, so they’ll eat any­thing. More pic­tures start­ing here.

  1. Soaking it in brine sounds like a good idea; suck some of the fat out and ten­der­ize what is nor­mal­ly a pret­ty tough cut.

    Too bad I don’t have a smok­er.

  2. More than a brine (though that would help)…sloooooooow cook­ing is what would turn that tough cut in­to but­ter.

  3. I cooked the last one for just un­der 3.5 hours and it was pret­ty ten­der. If I had a de­cent oven I’d feel com­fort­able cook­ing it for 8 hours or so, but that is yet to be.

  4. Funny. I was just talk­ing to Baggeroh last night about mak­ing pulled pork. Gotta try it one of the­se days in my slow cook­er (one of the great in­ven­tions of 20th cen­tu­ry hu­man­i­ty).

  5. Shalom Adam,

    I used to pig out at this cin­der block place in Kansas City, Kansas, every time I went there on busi­ness. Concrete floor, pic­nic ta­bles on the in­side with brown-pa­per ta­ble cloths, white bread, pa­per plates and pulled pork that made you want to drop to your knees and praise je­sus.

    I loved that place.

    B’shalom,

    Jeff
